The Mehlhop & Vogt focuses its practice on helping those that have been seriously injured at work. Mr. Mehlhop’s practice has been exclusively devoted to workers’ compensation in the Sacramento area since 1987. The Board of Legal Specialization of the State Bar of California has granted Mr. Mehlhop certified specialist status in this area of the law.

Our Attorneys:

California workers’ compensation law, passed by the state Legislature more than 85 years ago, guarantees prompt, automatic benefits to workers injured on the job. Before workers’ compensation, injured workers had to sue their employers to recover medical costs and lost wages. Lawsuits took months and sometimes years. Juries and judges had to decide who was at fault and how much, if anything, would be paid. Too often, the injured worker got nothing. It was costly, time consuming and unfair. Today, workers’ compensation is faster and fairer. If you cannot work because of a job injury, workers’ compensation pays your medical bills and provides money to help replace your lost income until you can return to work.

Thank you again for all you did. You know my husband was very grateful……after he passed away it was very hard, and I appreciate your support…..But its God’s way of telling me to let it go. I’m at peace with that. I’ll be able to move on. Thanks again for all your help.

Your legal advice and expertise became more than I could ever ask for as I pummeled though the past few years of betting back on my feet. You are a gem in your profession and I would always refer anyone in need of your services.

Thank you so much for all your continuous advice and legal expertise as I started and finally completed by workers comp case and follow-ups for disability through SCIF & SDI. I surely do appreciate all that you have done for me these past three years. I spoke for quite some time with [another specialist in Social security] (as you recommended) and she was very candid and helpful for me. I have chosen not to reapply/appeal Social Security Disability and am now purging and all my files to the trash. New year – different beginnings. You helped me through the most difficult time in my life and I cannot thank you enough. Should I ever be of help to you in any way do not hesitate to call.
